    Put together shell only.


    My question is inspired by memories of DOS.
    You just sys and copy, and have prompt.

    How could I go about putting together only
    bootloader , kernel (+basic drivers) and bash from binaries,
    and burn it to cd.

    I want to use this with ntfs-3g and midnight commander.

    I am thinking burning boot image and dirs to cd.

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Use busybox. Look for a rescue cd or other mini-type linux distro that uses it and leverage your work off that.

    I'll look into busybox...

    So first I need grub boot image.
    Then I need kernel file(s).
    Then I need to edit grub.conf .

    Then I burn boot image and files in cd filesystem.

    just dl any live-cd distribution of your choice and start it with parameter init 2

    "knoppix 2"
    Will start knoppix with just the command line active
